September 5, 2017 | Category: Latest News | Author: Monica Frager

When it comes to capital equipment purchases, do you think you and your supply chain team have a full understanding of negotiation best practices? Even if you do, a free broadcast from OpenMarkets will review seven best practices for healthcare providers and suppliers to keep in mind as they negotiate.

Scheduled for Thursday, September 14 at 1 p.m. EST / 10 a.m. PST, the broadcast is part OpenMarket’s ongoing broadcast series on topics of interest to supply chain leaders. This installment will feature John Kott, Director of Supply Chain Management at Norman Regional Health System in south-central Oklahoma, and Tom Derrick, OpenMarkets co-founder and senior vice president. Discussion will range across topics including anchoring, proper preparation, establishing a BATNA (best alternative to a negotiated agreement) and leveraging the benefits of multi-party negotiations.

“For anyone who buys or sells equipment, this broadcast should be very insightful, sparking new ideas and reinforcing the practices that really make a difference in any equipment negotiation,” says Derrick.

With more than 15 years of experience in hospital leadership including multiple corporate and local level leadership roles, John Kott has a broad understanding of what it takes to lead successfully in healthcare. Previously Director of Supply Chain Logistics and Operations at Christus Health, he now manages the supply chain function across Norman Regional Health’s multi-campus system.
